About JDI

JDI Contracts Inc. is a privately held Minnesota S-Corporation that was born in 2003. The owners, Roger Hoyum and Susan Gerchman, have worked in various heavy industry plants and construction since the late 1980s.

JDI was created to help industry owners and operators with change initiatives required to address growth and expansion opportunities, regulatory requirements, replacements due to end of life and obsolescence. Our teams are assembled from deep experience and training in finance, operations management, and technical support.

We offer and dedicate our entire training, experiences, and attention to the challenging and interesting problems our clients ask us to help solve.

In full time positions such as accounting, finance, operations, and engineering, we were challenged early in our careers to be successful with limited resources and cross-functional teams built from within our organizations. As senior engineers and project managers we demonstrated how to build new facilities and grow a company physically with hard work, dedication, and attention to detail. The skill and knowledge gained during decades of growth has been eroded by an aging work force, challenges and competition of globalization, and lean operating methods focused more on short term success.  Gone are the days where steady, long term growth offers the opportunity for deep, cross functional learning with patient and dedicated patrons of in-plant knowledge.

JDI’s project team experience spans nearly four decades and includes multi-disciplined project and operations experience in numerous industries. We’ve learned from some of the best builders and operators who came before us. We’ve learned how to listen and will share our experience freely for the benefit of our clients and their needs. We know what it takes to be successful because of those who have come before us, and are grateful for their patience and time.

We’re here to share this knowledge and help solve your most challenging issues. Give us a call today to see how we can help connect your people and solve your problems.
